Creaking master cylinder

Hey guys, on my race bike with stock master cylinder, I get a creaking sound when I grab the brakes. I installed pazzo shorties about a year ago and I think they may have something to do with it, but the sound is definitely coming from the M/C and not the lever. I think its where the "plunger" is. I've bled the brakes and m/c many times, tried to lube things up, etc etc. I can still feel and hear the creaking though (when the bike is off of course).

Any ideas? Or something wearing out in the M/C?

this is an 07, btw.

I just installed my galfer brake lines and found that the MC/lever was squeeking/creeking afterwards, but I think it has stopped not... maybe it just needs to lube up a little as you said... mine is an 07 too

Just fixed it with my Pazzo's. Put a small dab of silicone grease in the lever opening where the plunger goes in. Might as well do you lever pivot at the same time.....
